Ian McKellen Helps Forge His Own Ring

The Jens Hansen workshop, the “original designers and makers of the movie ring” for the Lord of the Rings films, has taken to Tumblr to showcase some of their amazing work.

The store, located in Nelson, New Zealand and now run by Jens Hansen’s son Halfdan, was in for a real treat when Sir Ian McKellen stopped by; he wound up getting his own ring made (even helping a bit at one point).

Check out their Tumblr to view photos or submit a question about their meeting with Gandalf! And while you’re there, scroll through and check out some of their other creations – they have a beautiful interpretation of the Ring of Barahir.
